Pharmacology was ranked at number 11, Law at 14, and Psychology at 15th in the world. UNSW was again the highest ranked university in Australia for Materials Science, which placed 17th in the world. Performing particularly well were the broad disciplines of Engineering, Life Sciences and Medicine, with every one of their subject areas ranked within the world’s top 50. “This is a very strong result that highlights the incredible breadth of UNSW’s research excellence,” Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) Professor Les Field said. Six Australian universities made it into the global top 10, with Melbourne Australia’s top performing university. The QS subject rankings are based on reputation surveys, research citations and a research impact measure. Media contact: Steve Offner, UNSW Media Office, 9385 1583, s.offner@unsw.edu.au
